Fix: Users can lose their approver

Thanks to some diligent investigation and a perfectly worded support ticket 👍 we identified an issue 🐛 where in some circumstances a user would lose their approver if they then updated their profile. 🙁

In normal Timetastic fashion we robustified the code around user updates, improved our test coverage and have just pushed the fix out.


Collection of fixes

- We've made the current year/year end clearer on the calendar page to reduce some confusion

- Entering a login code super fast could sometimes trip things up and skip over some numbers. That's sorted now 👍

- Some small improvements around group bookings and the mobile experience

Leave Type Icons

Ever look at the Wallchart and think? What is pink? Is that Annual leave or Sickness?

Well, wonder no more - you can now assign an icon for each different type of leave, and your calendar comes to life :)


You can choose which icons to use in SETTINGS > LEAVE TYPES:


They'll appear on your Calendar, on the Wallchart and on the summary in your calendar, like so...


Hope you like!

Small bugfix to summary reports

We've fixed an issue with the annual summary reports where in rare circumstances your users would show as having booked nothing of a certain leave type off - when in fact they had.

We promise the next updates will be more exciting.......


Better Preferences Menu

"My preferences" and "Sign in & security" have joined forces under our new, much clearer Preferences menu:

Now you can change your email notification settings, password, set up 2FA or see your sign ins all from the same place. Much clearer, much easier to scan through and hopefully you'll agree, much easier to use.


Other updates:

- We've also cleaned up an edge case permissions issue where some updates on users wouldn't save properly

- We've opted out of Google's controversial FLoC experiment on our website (see: https://plausible.io/blog/google-floc#what-is-federated-learning-of-cohorts-floc). 


Sign in tweaks

2FA

This one is mostly a result of internal feedback, but if we found it a little annoying at times then perhaps you did too...

We now remember your device/browser after a two-factor authenticated sign in for 30 days, instead of prompting you for the code each and every time you sign in.

Additionally, when inputting your code on a mobile device you should now be offered the numeric keyboard, which will hopefully ease your journey into Timetastic.

First sign in

We've improved the way we record your first sign in to Timetastic as a new user. In rare circumstances we were seeing that users weren't being reported as active, so weren't receiving emails.

Entering login codes on mobile improved

Some improvements to the behaviour of the Login Code screen today:

iOS users can now see the code they've entered, auto tabbing between the fields is fixed and we load the numeric keyboard rather than the full one.

Protip: You can just paste the code straight in to any of the boxes and we'll sort it all out and log you in 👍


New "My Preferences" page

New style Preferences page for you today. Nothing has changed in functionality, but it's more legible and accessible now. Especially on smaller screens.

In the invisible engine compartment of Timetastic we've tidied up some logging.
